View Full Version : Warmachine Cryx

24-04-2006, 11:22
Hi all, this is my very first topic on these forums, so I might as well say 'hi' in this one as well as starting my blog-thingy here.
My name is John Thompson, I'm 27 years young and live in the Netherlands. Been painting for around 9-ish years and done 3 1500 point 40k armies, painted for GT's all 3 of which have won 'Best Painted'. Some of you might know my Emperors Children, seen here (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v320/John_Thompson/Emperors%20Children/Compositions/).
I've also got 2 armies for WFB, but those are purely painted for playing, so nothing fancy there! Other things I've done are a couple of Storm Ghost space marines for the NE Chapter Master competition (lovely contest!) where I ended up 3rd place!

At this moment I'm painting up a Cryx battlegroup for the WarMachine game in a grey-ish colour scheme. Up until now I've only painted 3 models for it:
A Deathripper,

A Stalker,

and a Skarlock,

Currently working on a converted Warwitch Deneghra of which I'll post a WIP picture tonight.. Privateer Press has some very nice models in their range and especially Cryx has some rather nicely detailed figures!

I hope you ejoy the pictures and I'll try and update regularly (but don't expect too much, I'm a slow painter on this project and I have some other painting stuff as well)

In short - yum. Lovely subdued scheme, didn't realise how nicely bone and steel go together and the green contrast colour stands out nicely - also like the cofrontation feel grey armour, can't wait to see other jacks - some thralls aswell? what's in the group?

Only not/sure is the brass on the skarlock.

how do you do the greys you used on the warjack thingies, sorry but dont do warmachine but i thinks thats the right phrase???

Well, I'm not too known with the game myself, but yeah, they're called Warjacks.. Although for some reason, Cryx need to call them Bonejacks or Helljacks..
The base for the grey was a mix of Codex Grey, Catachan Green and a little black (all Citadel). It was shaded with a wash of Catachan Green, Scorched Brown, black, Red Gore and a ***** load of VMC Glaze Medium. Highlights are build-up by adding Fortress Grey to the base mix up to pure Fortress Grey. All of these mixes were pre-mixed in (numberd) pots.

So, after quite a while I can only do a small update; my Warcaster, Warwitch Deneghra. Stil work in progress, ofcourse, but slowly getting there!


And now, I'm off on vakation (not that I really earned it though)..
